TASTING NOTES

"Pure fruit here with lots of currant and berry. Full-bodied, with loads of fruit and velvety tannins. Long and delicious. Needs time. Best after 2009. 2,500 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Pacenti's mid-weight 2001 Brunello di Montalcino is made in a very similar style to the Rosso. A lively ruby, it opens with a finely nuanced, fresh nose, followed by a delicate core of ripe fruit that bursts onto the palate with exceptional elegance, purity and finesse. Silky, fine tannins frame the finish of this unforgettable, profound Brunello." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Deep, bright red. Exotic aromas of raspberry liqueur, roasted coffee and mocha. Lush, large-scaled, dense and sappy, with a compelling sweetness; really expands in the mouth. Perhaps a bit obvious and full-blown but sound acids give this wonderfully smooth, rich, fairly primary wine plenty of shape and sex appeal." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com

"Dark crimson. Sweet and oaky on the nose. Gentle texture - a lot of work has gone into this but it is modern rather than exceptionally expressive of Montalcino! Quite alcoholic... and sweet but probably a pleasure to drink." JancisRobinson.com
